This seminar is dedicated to reflection on the practice of imams and other Muslim leaders. The course will include readings on reflective practice and religious leadership, but the focus will be on peer-learning from the actual practice of Muslim leaders in their own religious communities and social situations. This process builds on the growing trust, reflective wisdom, and experience of the participants. The goal is for each participant to shape a form of reflective practice that integrates an approach to Islamic theology and thought with the daily demands of providing leadership, instruction, and spiritual care to local Muslim communities. Enrollment is limited to students in the Graduate Certificate in Imam and Muslim Community Leadership program.
